Director of KIADA Organizing Committee 인사말
my name is Bong-ho Son, a festival director of Korea International Accessible Dance Festival (KIADA).
KIADA, which took its first start in 2016 to create Korean style disabled dance, has become one of the important dance festivals in the world's disabled dance industry by presenting various contemporary disability dances.
Even now, KIADA will keep moving on, continue to expand awareness of disabled dance, and maintain social value by leading the diversification of dance. So, we will make efforts a lot to create works that are going to enrich the entire dance industry.
I hope that the disabled dancers, who will create another beginning of new art beyond their disability, will give a big pleasure to all audiences by their passion and effort from the heart.
Chairperson of KIADA Organizing Committee 인사말
KIADA, along with disabled artists around the world, is experiencing an unexpected and unprecedented time of crisis due to the coronavirus 19. And now we're thinking about the impact that's going to have.
With the endless cooperation and support of disabled dancers around the world, we have been able to grow over the past five years.
So up until a while ago, KIADA, which was running comfortably, was focusing on various programs to find a way forward.
And also, to celebrate the 5th event of 2020, scheduled for July, KIADA has been busy working on it.
However, from now on, in the period of chaos caused by the coronavirus 19, we have to be wise in finding a way to deal with it and planning the post-conflict process in order for KIADA to speed up and grow faster than ever again.
Therefore, we will have to think about the future in various ways and devote a lot of time to redesign it.
KIADA once again remembers its pledge to become a solid platform for dance around the world, and beyond this crisis, we will continue to seek all ways for more disabled dancers to continue to interact closely with Korea and enjoy the festival together.
I sincerely hope KIADA will become a member of the world's peace and well-being through art.
